Economic predictions show that the negative effects of the Coronavirus on both local and global economies will take years to balance the scales. The country's current recession is likely to continue, further dividing South Africans on the basis of economic means.
However, amidst all the setbacks and negative impacts this global pandemic has undoubtedly had on the livelihood of numerous households, South Africa has an economic advantage in various niche sectors, such as; mining, agriculture, tourism, manufacturing and service exports. These sectors have previously taken precedence on a governmental level and therefore have continued to flourish over the years. However, more needs to be done to ensure upcoming sectors are prioritised and given the same attention.
A growing industry
One of the most prominent upcoming sectors that will aid economic improvement, is finance. It is widely recognised as the driving force behind a successful economy. Since the Covid-19 outbreak and countries instituting lockdowns on economies, there is an urgent and constant need in the corporate world for qualified accountants, financial advisors, bookkeepers and more.
